We needed an inexpensive white phone for the kitchen and this phone looked perfect. Who would have thought we would receive a white phone with a black cord? I have purchased VTech products before and always been happy with them. However, the black cord strung across my pastel wall makes me angry every time I look at it. This time, it just wasn't worth the savings.
I originally had a 5 station vtech system. Three of the phones stopped ringing and the speaker phones stopped working as well. Rather than buy three new phones I opted to buy a three phone system (It costs about the same) and I am glad I did because it is very difficult to integrate a new phone to an existing system. The easiest way to expand or replace phones is just to install the second base and turn off the message recording on the second system. If you use the intercom function it will be a problem because you cannot talk between the two bases. Since I do not use the intercom function it was not a problem. The second problem with this "quick" solution is that you will have to create a second Directory.
